But I am a little bit concerned. Right now I have a routine for getting my water in and spacing out the meals/calories. When I am home full time for ten days, I'm worried about my schedule going right out the window...
Are any of you feeling this?
I'm thinking I still need to be setting my alarm to get up at a reasonable hour...otherwise I just know that I'll start sleeping in, and that leads to me staying up later and later......which will stretch out to 3 or 4am. I am such a night person, and trying not to be is an uphill battle. In any event, I'm going to also set an alarm on my phone to remind me about drinking the water. If I can get that part in on time, I'm pretty sure I can keep the calories in line as well, since I'm not so hungry when I'm full of water.
Do any of you have a plan for keeping on track when you are not on your regular schedule?
The hand is healing, getting less sore each day. No sign of infection, thank God! I was really worried about little bits of wood dust being trapped in there from the drill bit. Guess I got lucky!
So I am on the hook for Christmas dinner, and we will be having 9 people. Thats not a lot, but 5 of the 9 are between 68 and 80 years old. Oh boy!!
Of that, 2 are diabetic, one doesn't like turkey, 2 don't like ham, one cannot eat anything green (something to do with a blood-clotting issue), one doesn't eat any salad dressing, one doesn't eat any veggies whatsoever. And that is just the old folks! There is not one single child in that list of picky eaters! Oh joy! Matter of fact, there will be two teens there, who are the best eaters of the bunch. Plus we have one with certain food allergies.
So the menu is:
Turkey, brined like I did for Thanksgiving (NO eff-ing stuffing because NOBODY eats the eff-ing stuffing!!!!)
Ham and Holiday sausage (Dearborn Brand)
Apple sauce, unsweetened
Holy crap! These people are taking some food HOME!!
My plate will be: turkey, water, broccoli, water, salad, water, apple sauce, water, cranberry sauce, water, and shrimp (maybe), with water for dessert.
And the turkey soup will follow!
And I may make bean soup or lentil soup too.
And then I won't be cooking for the next 8 days!
